The strangest, yet happiest, thing is when you see something beautiful in the folds of ugly news. This is how I felt while reading about a noble mosque imam in Nigeria who protected Christian citizens from an imminent massacre that was about to be committed by Muslim citizens.

They escaped the town after Fulani gunmen attacked them and sought refuge in the town where the noble imam is.
